3 Men Slashed in Early-Morning Altercation Outside ‘Delilah’ on Rivington Street

Posted on: December 30th, 2017 at 2:52 pm by

Three men were injured in an early-morning slashing incident outside Delilah on Rivington Street, police said.

The story is still developing, but from what we understand, three men were apparently slashed by an assailant wielding a knife at around 5am. The altercation reportedly began inside the Delilah bar located between Suffolk and Clinton Streets, but the genesis of the dispute is unclear.

The victims reportedly suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to Bellevue Hospital, according to the Citizen mobile app.

The perpetrators fled the scene in an unidentified vehicle, police confirmed. We’re told that the investigation is ongoing.

This incident further reinforces the negative reputation of Delilah, the year-old St. Jerome’s replacement that some have dubbed “DL Lite.” Co-owned by DL honcho Paul Seres, the establishment is a top noise offender and alleged harbinger of violence in the Hell Square environs. Just two months ago, a female patron accused a police surgeon of raping her in his Brooklyn apartment.
